Review:

`admirable introduction ... a magisterial account ... Her in book is a brilliant synthesis of the oral histories, which she painstakingly obtained with the traditional historians concern for objectivity and real analysis. She narrates wonderful life stories about the people themselves. ... Janet Rizvi ... weaves these fascinating stories within the bedrock of historical facts to reveal the ancient trading routes of High Asia.' Hamida Khuhro, Dawn

`Dr Rizvi has written a scholar's book about the legendary silk routes and Ladakh itself that she knows so well. It is also a wonderfully evocative book about the trade routes across impossibly difficult terrains, traditional trading communities of the region; trade in silk, pashm, tea and other exotic goods that summon up visions of the courts of Timur and Haroun al Rashid. This is a satisfying book that is pleasure to read and which fills a real gap in our knowledge and makes us wonder how many gaps there still are which need to be filled.' Hamida Khuhro, Dawn

`skilfully combining scholarship with anecdote to bring alive the past social and economic life of an important crossroads of Asian trade ... Janet Rizvi has done a great service by providing this account of a lost way of life before it was too late to interview some of the participants.' Philip Andrews-Speed, Asian Affairs, Vol. XXXII, Part I, Feb 2001

`Rizvi has directed her attentions to the economic significance of the region, skilfully combining scholarship with anecdote to bring alive the past social and economic life of an important crossroads of Asian trade.' Philip Andrews-Speed, Asian Affairs, Feb 2001
